    Here's something really laughable. At the top of the hour I'm sitting here and I'm looking at the television. I was in Snerdley's office looking at television and I was watching MSNBC, and they're talking to the governor who was the architect of the highest unemployment rate in the country: Jennifer Granholm in Michigan. The Michigan unemployment rate is 15.1% (probably a little higher than that, even, if you count the U6, people that have given up looking). Now, what is the architect of the largest, highest unemployment state in the country doing at that jobs summit? What in the...

    Fox News Sunday ^ | Nov 27, 2016 | Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace
    Ohio Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan told Chris Wallace that the Democratic caucus' failure in this past election is due to the fact that their legislators have not concentrated enough on economic issues. Ryan, 43, who is challenging Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for her House Minority Leader position, said "a robust economic message that covers everybody" is the best prescription for Democrats' success in the future.

    Wikileaks was able to shed light on what top Bill Clinton aide Doug Band, who helped start the Clinton Foundation and went on to co-found his own consulting firm, Teneo, called Bill Clinton, Inc. The 13-page memo described how money could be obtained to go to both the Clinton Foundation and to the Clintons personally. That strategy centered on using the Foundationís top tier donor base (Dow Chemical, Coca-Cola, etc.) to also forge paid speaking engagements and consulting deals. The amount that Bill could personally reap with this strategy could be as much as $66 million if everything remained in...

  • Flashback: Fact-Free 'Middle-Out Economics' (Leftist Dream of Redistribution Over Wealth Creation)

    National Review ^ | July 29, 2013 | James Pethokoukis
    Itís a new term for the old leftist dream of redistribution over wealth creation. President Obama has finally stopped blaming George W. Bush for Americaís current economic mess. Now itís Ronald Reaganís fault. Obama didnít use those exact words or make that explicit claim in his Knox College speech last week, but thatís the gist of it. The Great Recession and its slow-growth, high-unemployment aftermath are really just the culmination of three decades of pro-market economic policies that favored the rich at the expense of the middle class. Hereís how Obama rewrites economic history: The shared national purpose of World...

    She knows she's just saying what polls find Americans want to hear. In a 2015 email to campaign manager Robby Mook, speech writer Dan Schwerin revealed Hillary wasn't happy with her staff performance. "HRC just called me and expressed a fair amount of frustration with how things are going," Schwerin wrote in June. "She said we've given a series of very good policy speeches and in between we just keep giving her poll-tested lines that don't work, like make the middle class mean something," he told Mook.

    RUSH: All right, here's the Sandy Burglar stuff. By the way, this news coming out yesterday and today is a typical dump going into a slow news time. "Former national security advisor Sandy Berger removed classified documents from National Archives in 2003 and hid them under a construction trailer, the Archives inspector general reported yesterday." Now, this has been chalked up here to, "Sandy wasn't thinking," or "Sandy is sloppy," or "Sandy is such a hard worker," or Sandy this or Sandy that. He put it in his socks. He put the papers down his pants or whatever. Now we...

    President Obama adds: In this sense, Iranís leaders have a choice between two paths. If they cannot agree to a reasonable deal, they will keep Iran on the path itís on todayóa path that has isolated Iran, and the Iranian people, from so much of the world, caused so much hardship for Iranian families, and deprived so many young Iranians of the jobs and opportunities they deserve. President Obama continues to speak of Iranís ďleadersĒ as if anyone other than the Ayatollah would have a final say on the nuclear deal. His White House has frequently decried congressional efforts to...
  • Yellen: Unemployment Rate 'Less Rosy' When You Count Part-Time, Discouraged Workers

    CNS News ^ | February 24, 2015 | Ali Meyer
    Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said Tuesday at a Senate Banking Committee hearing that the U-6 unemployment rate--which includes people who are working part-time for economic reasons and those who are marginally attached to the labor force--ďdefinitely shows a less rosy pictureĒ of employment in the country. People "marginally attached" to the labor force "are those who currently are neither working nor looking for work but indicate that they want and are available for a job and have looked for one work sometime in the past 12 months." In January, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the "U-3" unemployment...
  • High GDP Numbers for Q3? We Can Thank Obamacare and Forced Consumer Spending

    Examiner.com ^ | December 23, 2014 | Kenneth Schortgen Jr
    The revision which helped create last quarters incredible growth was the forced mandatory costs incurred by the American people from the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), which accounted for two-thirds of the entire boost in consumer spending. Consumer spending, as opposed to the recording of revenues from actual production and industry which used to be the primary components of economic growth in America, on average accounts for more than 70% of the entire Gross Domestic Product. And if you took out payments made by the American people towards mandatory government healthcare, GDP may have been in negative growth for last quarter,...

    This is how deranged and filled with lunatics the Democrat Party base is. She's saying that, and the fact that she said that tells me how afraid of Elizabeth Warren she is. Elizabeth Warren's been running around. You know her pet phrase (imitating Warren), "You didn't build that, Mr. Factory Owner. You didn't build that, Mr. Business Owner. You didn't do that. You couldn't have done that without all of us. We paid the taxes to build the roads. We paid the taxes to build the bridges. We made your business possible. You didn't build that." And Obama echoed it....

    The difficulty for younger workers finding jobs is also a factor...The participation rate for those age 16 to 24 was near a 50-year low. Heidi Shierholz, a labor economist with the Economic Policy Institute...She points out that the participation rate of "prime-age" workers, age 25 to 54, also fell to match the lowest reading since 1984. "It's the lack of job opportunities -- the lack of demand for workers -- that is keeping these workers from working or seeking work, not other factors," she said. Shierholz said estimates from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office show there are 3.9 million workers...

    Representative Tim Walz's republican challenger, Jim Hagedorn, is accusing Walz of wanting to move Al Qaeda prisoners to Rochester. Hagedorn talked to the media outside Federal Medical Center in Rochester on Thursday. He said Representative Walz voted to close the Guantanamo Bay Prison and supports transferring what Hagedorn calls the worst Islamic terrorists on the planet into the US. Hagedorn goes on to say that Walz is open to bringing some of those prisoners to FMC in Rochester. "The people of Southeast Minnesota, the people of Rochester, are protected by the Islamic terrorists in Guantanamo bay by 1,875 miles, an...

    Rochester police Capt. John Sherwin described the scene officers were called to about 1:40 a.m. Sunday as a "riot." Officers found 40-60 people fighting in the area of Third Street and First Avenue. When one officer tried making an arrest, his glasses were knocked off and stepped on. When another officer tried making an arrest, four to five people tried grabbing an officer and pulling away. "The officers do what they have to do, and their safety dictated that they responded in a way where at least a few people had to get away. Just because they got away Sunday...
